The hardships continue to pile up for Robert Kelly...
Recently, it's been revealed that R. Kelly had been dropped from Sony's RCA Records despite having a brand new album ready to be released.
Now, to add to his list of problems in the meantime, not only is his well-being at stake, so are his rights as a citizen. The Philadelphia City Council has voted unanimously to ban him from stepping foot in the city as part of Councilwoman Helen Gym's "Mute R. Kelly" resolution.
Helen spoke out via Twitter:
We reject a system that silences black women and accepts black pain. We believe survivors. R. Kelly is not welcome in Philadelphia. This symbolic act of solidarity puts all sexual predators on notice.
Further clarifying her idea for a resolution, Helen added that the main goal here was to send a message to the singer that the city supports his survivors and condemns sexual abuse.
